Arvada Firefighters Car Fest raises thousands for Arvada Fire Protection District

160 cars convened at Stenger for the annual firefighter fundraiser

Posted

Around 160 cars ranging from a 1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia to a 1933 Ford were on display on Aug. 7 at Stenger Sports Complex for a good cause — the annual Arvada Firefighters Car Fest. This year’s car fest brought in an estimated $6,000 for Friends of Arvada Fire, a nonprofit that supports the Arvada Fire Protection District.

Dennis Giullan won the People’s Choice award for his purple 1933 Ford Street Rod while Sheridan Graham won the Classic category for his black 1950 Pontiac Chieftain.

Vice President of the Arvada Fire Board of Directors Bob Loveridge said he was happy with how the event went and has been progressing over the years.

“Someone told me that the thing they love about this car show is that everyone is happy, and I thought that was a really great way to describe this event,” Loveridge said. “This car show continues to grow each year and we’re exceptionally thankful for the support of the attendees, participants and vendors, as well as the City of Arvada and the parks department.”
